    New Weigh of Life - a year long program (Santa Cruz)

    This diabetes prevention program is well-suited for overweight individuals with pre-diabetes or insulin resistance. Individuals diagnosed with Diabetes are also welcome, provided Diabetes Self-Management Training has been completed.

    Our program uses the University of Pittsburgh's "Group Lifestyle Balance™ Program" which is an evidence-supported adaptation of the original National Institutes of Health/National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease-supported Diabetes prevention program (DPP). DPP results show an average weight loss of 7% body weight with moderate activity reduced the risk of developing type 2 Diabetes by 58% (and as much as 71% in individuals over the age of 60).

    Participants will learn behavior modification and lifestyle changes for weight loss, improved health and risk reduction. Join us for this year-long weight management program that consists of 16 core sessions and 6 monthly post-core sessions.
